Summary

The digital divide, lack of stable electricity and other infrastructure needed to actualize digitization and ODeL, a nonexistent culture of eLearning in most African education systems are a major stumbling block to implementing an inclusive sector response to COVID-19. As the African Union Commission, numerus bilateral virtual meetings have been held with various education technology support outfits geared towards continuous learning and mitigate long term effects of the pandemic on teaching and learning. After clearly assessing the majority of the platforms presented, the question of inclusivity still remains. This paper will attempt to outline a series of guidelines to digitization and adoption of ODeL using the African Union DOTSS1 approach as a long term cushion to the effects caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, it will attempt to present processes and procedures to ensuring that the right eLearning and digitization products are adopted.
